Do I tell people I have ADD? or not?

I was diagnosed with Inattentive ADD a few weeks ago, so there are only a few people in my life that know about it. My immediate family knows, and one friend. I don't mind people knowing because I don't feel ashamed about it or anything like that. And while I don't mind people knowing at all, I also don't feel like I should be going out telling everyone about it. So, I'm stuck.

How do you tell people that you have ADD? Does it just come up in conversations, do you just blurt out "I have ADD", or do you just see if the topic comes up? Or do you just keep it to yourself?
